Tuesday September 19th at 7 pm your deacons had their monthly meeting. This meeting included the deacons of the present board and incoming board members in order to make a smooth transition of information and responsibilities.
During tonight’s meeting several decisions were made in reference to the order of our Sunday morning service.
We asked that during the welcome and greeting fellowship time that instead of moving all around the church that everyone greet those right around them, especially guests.
The deacon board voted that we will no longer make announcements from the pulpit on Sunday mornings. We will no longer do our birthday & anniversaries on the first Sunday of each month.
We have several other ways of getting general information and announcements out to the church that included:
- Church Bulletins as we are doing and that everyone in attendance can read.
- Sunday school
- Word of mouth
- Wednesday nights – we encourage everyone on this night for fellowship and learning.
- Monthly business meeting – for planning a discussion of church events and programs.

Why was the decision made to make these changes? We want to make the most our time together worshiping our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
It says in Psalm 29:2 Ascribe to the Lord the glory due his name; worship the Lord in the splendor of his holiness.
If you have questions, comments, concerns or praise and compliments about your church feel free to share them with your present deacon. We are excited about what God has planned for St. Helena Baptist Church.
